"Jack Eye Jones Story"

There’s never a dull moment for Scottish producer Jack Eye Jones. Now firmly ensconced in Los Angeles his recent relocation has resulted in the emergence of a string of new anthems with ‘Story‘ the latest in a line of bombastic productions to emerge from his studio laboratory.

The original is a marked departure from the norm for the Scottish producer, embracing the groovier side big room and possessing a future house bass line that will send shivers down the spine of even the most seasoned of clubbers. Accompanying the distinctive vocals is a breakdown like no other, incorporating clever synth stabs and an entrancing guitar hook to give the track a unique quality and an unmistakable summer flavor.

The track comes complete with a smash of a remix from the legendary Laidback Luke who features on Jack’s IBZ Records for the very first time. Having debuted the track during Miami WMC, Luke has put his own spin on the original hyping the energy levels to the maximum and adding a pulsating future style drop that makes his rework instantly recognizable.

"Introducing Jack Eye Jones"

With Miller Genuine Draft

Jack Eye Jones is a name we have been hearing with increasing regularity of late. Very much a modern dance music success story, the Scotsman has used new media to build a loyal following – most notably through his Ibiza Sessions Radio Show – which has topped the iTunes podcast charts and had over one million downloads to date.

He recently recorded a cover mix for DJ Mag USA, has been supported by Avicii and most recently Tiesto has remixed his new single ‘Playground’. Very much an artist in ascendance, we thought it was time to introduce him properly!

THE TRACK Tiesto’s remix of ‘Playground’ will be the record that propels Jack Eye Jones into the big leagues. With over 100,000 plays in the first 4 days of being upload, the full-throttle EDM monster is destined for the Beatport top 10s. - DJMAG

"The Making of a world class DJ q&a with Jack Eye Jones"

The making of a world class DJ

We spoke to Jack Eye Jones, a UK producer and modern dance success story whose name you’ll be hearing a lot of this year.

We managed to catch Jack during some intense LA, Ibiza, UK schedule-juggling and got the low down on aiming big, being remixed by Tiësto & the transformation from local studio owner to globally renowned producer.

Jack, you’re one of the biggest dance music artists to emerge from Scotland in the last decade. Tell us about your roots and how you got into music.

“I owned a recording studio in my early days, I was more about live music than DJing. But the studio didn't make much money, everyone was too busy having fun, so eventually it closed down. I love live music, real bands, real instruments, so it's great that my production has evolved to use more of these elements, starting with my summer track ‘Rainbows’.”

How difficult was it to cut through all the noise and get noticed?

“You have to aim big, very big, well above your weight. Think where you want to be next year not next week or month, and push for that, aim for the moon and land amongst the stars, so to speak.
 I have a mentor, Jon Mancini who has been there and done it, even Tiësto warmed up for him years ago. He has been there for me through this journey kept my feet on the ground when I was losing it, when I needed help. If you can latch on and feed from someone like this, it will serve you well – it’s the support from him and my fans that has stopped me quitting when I came close.”

What was your first big success and was there a milestone, like Tiësto's remix of ‘Playground’, where you thought “I’ve made it”?

“When do people actually acknowledge the fact they have? I would say a point of great satisfaction for me was last year when I had a million downloads of my Ibiza Sessions podcast from iTunes, that got me serious attention. It wasn't even a thought that I could get this amount of downloads. Never mind being number 1, four times on iTunes!”

What’s your one piece of advice to aspiring DJs and producers? 

“Be creative and think outside the box, and don't forget to enjoy the journey.”

You made your name through a series of bootlegs that you gave away free on your SoundCloud page, are there any other tips for profiling yourself that you’d give to up and coming artists?

“Yes. Do what you love and put your heart into getting out to as many people as you can, you have to look at yourself as a product that you want to put in front of as many people as possible. And really use social media to your advantage.”

We know we can expect big things, but what’s next for you and where can we catch you? 

“I've been offered a college tour in America and I'm up for the job, so I'm moving to LA for a bit and commuting back to Europe. My highlight this year so far is being booked to play the Main Stage on Sunday at Creamfields. It’ll be my second time there - last year I was on a small stage that totally erupted! 
 In Scotland, I have Coloursfest and I also have my own arena showcasing some of the great Scottish talent coming through, including my favourite: 18 year old DJ Calvin Logie.
 And in Ibiza of course, I have my boat parties. These have gained a great reputation for being crazy and attracting great DJs like Mark Knight, Dannic, Dyro, Jon Mancini, Mallorca Lee, Rosko and La Fuente. I'll be flying back from Creamfields to do the last one this Summer.” - DJMAG

"10 Artists that should make the DJMAG top 100 debut"

Cracking into the DJ Mag Top 100 is a major accomplishment for any electronic dance artist and can bring along several opportunities such as collaborations and international tours with top-tier artists. Despite its controversy for being a popularity contest and the ongoing debate of who really deserves to be on the list, it is a career milestone that every DJ would put on their resume if they were to be a part of this elite club.

Here at EDMTunes, it is a pleasure to support talented artists and see them grow on a daily basis. Below is our list of ten DJs (in no particular order) who we are expecting to be making their DJ Mag Top 100 debut this year.

1) Disclosure
Although ‘Latch’ came out about two year ago, it is only as of this past year where every mother, daughter, father and son now belt out to the sexy tune that features Sam Smith’s impeccable pipes. They’ve remixed Usher and Pharell, while getting you hooked on their originals ‘When A Fire Starts To Burn’ and ‘White Noise’. With a fresh house sound that they are quickly bringing into mainstream territory, we would not be surprised if Disclosure became a household name.

2) The Chainsmokers

This goofy production duo are actually some of the most humble guys we know. Spearheading the indie progressive house sound, it is rather ironic that their claim to fame is the one song they made as a joke, ‘#SELFIE’. Regardless, they know have established an enormous platform and have a sweet publishing deal with Sony as well. The Chainsmokers are charming, kind, and most importantly, talented.

3) 3LAU
In the past year, 3LAU has done what many people did not think he could do: transition from being a college mashup DJ into a respected artist who releases full-fledged and successful original productions. Working with some of the industry’s top talent including Dash Berlin and Botnek, 3LAU is at a very exciting point in his life. With an excellent progressive house sound destined for the main stage crowds, 3LAU deserves a spot on the top 100 list.

4) Sick Individuals
The amount of musical talent that brews in the Netherlands is simply incredibly. Sick Individuals have grabbed the past year by the horns and done everything in their power to work with the best and release music that most definitely meets superb expectations. They’ve collaborated with Armin van Buuren, cranked out an official remix for Avicii, and flipped a Flo Rida track into an energized electro house anthem.

The rowdy and raunchy brotherly duo DVBBS have caused quite the storm in the past year, literally. ‘Tsunami’ truly acted as a catalyst for the big room movement that is still dominating the Beatport charts today. They’ve signed releases to Spinnin’ Records and Musical Freedom, in addition to collaborating with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike on one of the most popular festival records to bump, ‘Stampede’. Oh.. did we mention that their hit collaboration with Martin Garrix and Sander van Doorn on ‘Gold Skies‘ has been playing at almost every gig throughout the world for the past several months?

6) Adventure Club
Fans of this stellar Canadian duo remain so loyal because of their consistent releases of mind-blowing music, sprinkled with their awesome personalities. Their remix of ‘Yuna’ by Lullabies remains a very relevant song today and melts the hearts of both old and new fans of Adventure Club. Their hour-long mix series ‘Anonymous Superheroes‘ has garnered a ton of popularity and given the infrequency of the series, each one is greatly embraced and coveted.

7) Oliver Heldens
Oliver Heldens has had a strong 2014 so far and with his Musical Freedom smash hit ‘Gecko’, alongside ‘Koala’ on Spinnin’ Records, he continues to bring future house to the forefront of the dance music industry. Known for his catchy hooks and impressive dance moves, Mr. Heldens has made himself a strong contender for 2014.

8) Audien
I’m relatively surprised there haven’t been any investigations as to whether Audien is a machine or not. This young artist has released some of the hottest records in the past year including ‘Circles‘, his remix of ‘Pompeii’ by Bastille (most played tune at EDC LV 2014), and ‘Serotonin‘ featuring Matthew Koma. Only a select few artists have been given the opportunity to work with arguably the most popular and talented dance male vocalist, Matthew Koma. Besides Audien, Matthew Koma has worked with Zedd on a handful of projects.

9) Henry Fong

If Mr. Fong’s dreads aren’t enough to give him VIP entrance into the top 100, then his music and festival resume should be enough to back him up. He’s performed at Electric Zoo, Hard Summer, EDC Vegas and Ultra Miami. With releases on Musical Freedom, Doorn, Ultra, Henry Fong has powered through this year like a viking slayer. Power on Fong, power on.

10) Jack Eye Jones
If you’ve ever stepped onto the wonderful dance paradise island that is Ibiza, you are most likely familiar with the name Jack Eye Jones. The man is a monster in the best way possible. Although he may be a long shot for the top 100 list this year, keep this guy on your radar as it is simply a matter of time before he explodes in popularity. If Ibiza is too far of a trek for you? Catch him in the states on his US tour. - EDM Tunes

"Out Of Order"

DJ/Producer Jack Eye Jones has settled back in his native Scotland after a busy summer and is gearing up for a string of new releases. ‘Out of Order’ is next in line for release and comes out on Jack’s own label IBZ on the 4th of November.

MAGNETIC RECOMMENDS: Exclusive Premier: Aire Atlantica & Burban Gold- 51sick

This anecdotal track highlights the outrage felt by many a Glaswegian commuter to Ibiza over the summer, with certain airlines stopping on the runway to remove passengers and in one case diverting 14 passengers off to France. The two vocal samples of the track highlight a condescending pilot addressing a partying ‘mob.’ The name ‘Out of order’ (suggested by a fan on the same flight) is directed at the airline staff.

‘Out of Order’ comes in with a Dutch synth and an interesting high end beat with lots of aqueous samples. The track has a big-room style kick & snare with simultaneous kicks and cymbals, producing an aggressive pointed beat. There is a heavy 6/8 swing feel to it with the bass syncopated with synth leads. - Magnetic Mag

"EDC 15 most popular tunes sorted for 2014"

This year seems to be a fabulous one for dance music with massive record productions and releases. For Scotsman, Jack Eye Jones it has been a good year too with now his latest single ‘Far East’ releasing under his very own IBZ Records. What’s more, Blasterjaxx have given this new dynamite of a track a fantastic remix. It’s been a landmark year for Jack Eye Jones with strong support forthcoming from the likes of Avicii, Tiësto and many others, and this new release along with the remix earmarks a new adventure for the Scotsman.

‘Far East’ is fast and fluid number which made its very first hear at Ultra this year in the sets of Blasterjaxx and was yet to be released. With Jack Eye Jones putting a name and a affluence over it, the pieces of the puzzle come together. Although set to traverse the borders or electro and progressive, Far East is one track which is here to stay-both the remix and the original are definitely going to make it to every playlist out there. The impeccable sounds of Jack Eye Jones promise a new melody to make its way into the dance music scene with its incredible beats and a noteworthy drop.

While an unknown in the States, Jack, who describes his sound as "the harder end of progressive electro house," has built a respectable presence in Europe. His monthly podcast series Ibiza Sessions is a regular on the Top 10 iTunes UK Chart, he's shared the stages of Ibiza's hallowed venues with the likes of Mark Knight, Dyro, and Dannic, and he made his way to Creamfields' Cream Friends Arena last year.

The release of Tiesto's Playground remix comes at the perfect time for big room fans making the sacred pilgrimage to Miami this week. The track announces its arrival with a monstrous bassline pulled along by screaming synths and deep, resounding saws. The euphoric violence transitions into voluminous melody filled with the essence of electronic beauty, a beauty that unexpectedly drops into the perfect mix of earth-shattering four-on-the-floor thumping and an insanely addictive horn synth.

Playground marks the arrival of Jack Eye Jones onto the world-wide EDM stage--expect for this anthem to crowds into a frenzy at a festival near you. Keep on the lookout for the Scotsman and be sure to pick up your copy of Playground on Beatport today!

This production has managed to get a remix by the king of clubland himself, Tiesto. The Tiesto remix features his not-so-newly acquired signature big room club sound.

"Playground the latest monster tune sliding out way from Scotland's finest"

'Playground' - the latest monster tune sliding our way from Scotland's finest

Interview : Dan Prince

Dude welcome to DMCWORLD, where in the world are you today?

“Just back from a very cold NY. I had a couple days in the studio in London where I get to work on a lot of stuff at Brixton Jamm with a variety of musicians, and now back in Scotland for a week then off to play in Miami for the first time.”

You have the Buzz Chart office dancing on the tables this week thanks to your awesome ‘Playground’ track swinging our way on your own IBZ label. Tiesto is such a massive fan of yours he has done his own remix of the track, how did that come about?

“Tiësto has been supporting my mashups and bootlegs over the last year on numerous occasions both in his live sets, podcasts and on Radio 1. So we sent him over some original productions of mine and he jumped on playground, which was incredible. In all respect what he has done with the stems is something I wish I could do one day, he took it to such another level, still cant believe he remixed it, so thanks Tijs. The feedback on the track has been amazing and had 100,00 plays on soundcloud in the first few days, and my twitter and Facebook has been going mental with message and support for the track.”

Who are the producers that YOU are bigging up at the moment?

“Tiësto obviously, Deorro has this great sound just now, it’s quite different, Blasterjaxx who are remixing one of my best tracks Far East, I haven't heard their remix yet its due any day, so excited to hear it.”

We were in Ibiza last summer and saw you spinning as part of the Colours mini take over…what was the highlight of that trip?

“Surviving it.”

I have known Colours head honcho for over 20 years. One of his party tricks used to be taking all his clothes off and walking around his club naked. What is the worst state you have seen Ricardo?

“Hahahahahhahahahaha omg. Yeah I know many stories like that including in Privilege I believe he jumped in the pool as well, Ricky is now sober and has been since that date. I have never seen him even looking at a beer never mind get in a state…yeah right - the guy is a legend, everyone loves him, he looks after me and gave me a chance and I proved myself when others didn't. I'm eternally in his debt for believing in me.”

Let’s kick back for a moment. How old were you when you first heard your first dance music?

“I would be about 16. Atlantic 252 on Long Wave used to play some great stuff, wow that goes back a bit.”

What came first, DJing or producing?

“I owned a recording studio when I was about 20 was used mostly for bands, there would be a set of 1210's there on occasions so I got taught on them, looking back I must have been pretty bad as I didn't keep it up…”

Early DJ heroes?

“Tiësto, John Digweed, Sasha to name a few….”

Can you remember the first club you DJ’d at?

“I had a radio show in Romania on a Friday night…Kickstart to the Weekend. What I played was completely different to what was being played on the radio and in clubs, someone thought it would be a good idea to introduce this to the biggest club under a brand of I Love Ibiza. I remember the owner saying on the first night, "what is this music", and the resident DJ saying, this is what I’ve been telling you happens outside this town and I’ve been trying to play for ages. The nights went on to be a great success and I'd love to go back one day, I made a lot of mistakes and I learned from it. I know how to entertain and it’s not just about what you play, although picking the right tracks really helps. That person went on to be my agent for the next year until it got too big to handle, again eternally in that persons debt, my first agent Alex.”

Finest record you have ever played to a dancefloor?

“I have a bootleg of Born Slippy, by underworld its called called Born Trippy, I tried to clear it with the label, but they werent interested, it gets playd by loads of people inc Avicii, I suppose its not good enough for them, I don't promote it much, and it has to be the right time the right place and the right feeling before I play it in my sets.

Here's the link:


What was your first big break in the industry?

"Tiësto supporting one of my mashups on his clublife podcast, he still continues to support them."

What is the current top 10 you are spinning…

"A lot of my mashups, I have this knack of finding vocals that go well in key with tracks that are in the beatport top 10 so if it isnt some of my original work then its my mashups, which would be the beatport top 10 but have acapellas from the 80's and 90s over the top of them, here is a few that I would always play...











It may not be good for my image but Jack Eye Jones really loves…

"Spending time with my friends."

Away from a pounding dancefloor, who are some of the artists you like to chill out to?

"Eric Prydz, I always have his podcast on, I'm a great fan of his, he cooked me dinner last year, was all a shock, still can't believe someone of his aurora made me dinner. The Cafe Mambo podcast is also amazing, at least once a week I would be listening to each of these."

Best piece of advice you have ever been given?

"Don't go on twitter when drunk "Jon Mancini"."

What is coming out next from the label…?

"Next out is the Tiësto remix of 'Playground' and 2 other version from myself which have a lot of vocals, I used the girl from Alabama 3 who has an amazing soulful voice, there is a stage version and an ibiza chillout version, next is Far East which has been remixed by BlasterJaxx, otherwise I would have released it by now, its crazy, I have started signing other producers to the label one producer is 16 and has been producing since he was 12, I have a massive opportunity to spotlight new acts though my Ibiza Sessions podcast and at gigs."

Tell us about the first time you went to Ibiza…

"First time I loved it, I used to stay all the time at my friends hotel Pikes. I even have my picture on the wall of fame wall in reception, Tony is a very good friend of mine and I'm working on helping him release a book about his life and the hotel, I have my friend Howard Marks (Mr Nice) working with him on this."

What is it about the white isle that means so much to you?

"Ibiza has so many levels to it, it's not perfect and things are getting better, the best part for me is it inspires you, it makes me much more productive - although it has to be respected as it can destroy you, which it has to me on many many occasions."

Talk us through your monthly podcast series ‘Ibiza Sessions’ which regularly rides high in the Top 10 iTunes UK chart…

"They are different, I get to play what I'm currently playing in clubs, its a good way for people to have an idea what your going to play in a club, rather than an album which could be well out of date of what a DJ is going to play, I used to swear a lot on it at the start it probably offended a lot of people, but I got a lot of listeners and followers as it was different, I have now stopped my potty mouth and trying to be more professional. They were funny though. Here is one...


And finally when I was telling the Buzz Chart crew I was interviewing you today they shouted “tell him he is the biggest thing to come out of Scotland since Lorraine Kelly”. Thoughts on that sunshine?

"Did she ever come out of Scotland?"

Thanks pal. Dan Prince.

"Thanks pal. Jack King." - DCM World


Still working on that hot first release.



Jack Eye Jones Bio (Short Version)

It’s rare that you meet an act with more of a passion for every aspect of an artist’s life than Jack Eye Jones. Whether it be a live performance, studio work or his ever popular radio presence the Scotsman has developed a passionate, devoted fan base off the back of his own unbridled love for dance music.

2014 was undoubtedly a break out year for the producer with a number of his productions attaining worldwide acclaim beginning with a remix from the legendary Tiësto back in March. The Dutchman put his stamp on the Jack Eye Jones original Playground which attracted over half a million plays in just a few days before smashing straight into the Beatport Top 10. Last May also saw the release of another JEJ banger in Far East, with a massive remix from Mixmash and Revealed Records duo Blasterjaxx.

Jack’s own radio presence comes in the form of his monthly podcast series ‘Ibiza Sessions’. The podcast has topped the iTunes UK Chart on four occasions, and is on course to break the milestone of 2 million downloads this spring. Alongside the show, Jack Eye Jones continues to host his Ibiza Sessions Boat parties where he has been joined by the likes of Mark Knight, Jullian Jordan, D-wayne, Dannic, Dyro, Junior Sanchez, Danny Howard, La Fuente, and Tom Staar.

All told, there can be no doubt that the last 12 months have represented a major step up for a man who lives and breathes a 4/4 beat. With stellar performances at the Creamfields (main stage), Avicii in Ushuaia, Cream in Amnesia and as a resident in Gatecrasher, Ibiza for El Carnaval (Size) which included weekly pre parties at Savannah on the Sunset Strip, Jack Eye Jones continues to impress crowds all over the world. Last fall the producer also completed his first US Tour alongside contemporaries like Dada Life, GTA, Borgore, Mercer, Lil John, DVBBS, Above & Beyond, Benny Benassi, and Audien. Alongside his touring, the new music continues to flow. Following the successful release of vocal anthem Rainbows in January 2015, this spring Jack Eye Jones will unleash a string of highly anticipated productions including, Everywhere (with the full backing of Fleetwood Mac) and featuring vocals from starlet Bonnie Bailey. The coming months will also see the emergence of two future house based weapons from the Jack Eye Jones studio, the first of which Invincible is a remix of Pat Benetar via Black Hole Recordings (where Jack recently released his official remix of Tiësto – Adagio For Strings) and the second is the groove based Story which will be accompanied by an exciting remix package by Laidback Luke.
